SCW at Wetlands
Wetlands was a premier rock-n-roll club that was forced to close due to gentrification of the TriBeCa neighborhood. During the last month they were open, Sept 2001, many bands that headlined there previously came back to play final shows there - Blues Traveler, Phish, Spin Doctors, etc. Awesome little venue, and the bands would walk in through the front door just like everyone else.
I was at this SCW show - the 8th was a Saturday night, but they didn't come on until almost 2 am (Sunday morning, the 9th) and played about 3 hours - incredible rock and roll at it's rawest roots.
The sad lasting memory of the night - the World Trade Center was about 10 blocks south of Wetlands - as my wife and I left the venue at 5 am or so we looked up at the WTC and marveled how majestic it was at night - 2 days later on the 11th it was no more - God Bless all of the lost souls.....
